Hey Folks,

Are there any special NAT / connection flag settings required for this? I saw a post or two about the Bitcoin client having limited connections where there's no port forwarding, how are miner rigs affected by this?

Cheers

Well, they are to Affected, because :

If you Pool mine, you dont need any Bitcoin Clients Running (Except the one to receive your BTC).
If you Solo mine, you only need one Client started as "bitcoin.exe -server" and connect the Miners via IP to it.

Should be fine - assuming you have a router somewhere within the mix (obviously), you dont need to allow inbound connections for mining.

not to mention if you're solo mining and your bitcoin server is behind the same router, it's not even going outside the lan.

Great thanks, already got port forwarding set up for the Bitcoin Client - good to know I don't have to work out something similar for multiple mining rigs.

I wouldn't set up port forwarding on my router to the Bitcoin Client unless you are planning to have miners out in the world. And even then I'd use a dedicated wallet that was emptied immediately after a block was found.

I don't think the client has been subjected to the rigorous testing necessary to expose it to the Internet (and hackers.) You run the risk of having your wallet compromised and all your coinage stolen.

Thanks for the tip; reading the documentation I assumed that it was a necessity - will pull the forwarding now!
